Visibility/Location: There were many signs so it was easy to locate. It was difficult to find your way out of town though.

Wait Entertainment: The wait entertainment was not as scary as prior years. Some actors tried hard to stay their part, but others wandered around.

Length of Event: 15 minutes

Actor Performance: Some actors were in character and some were not. The ones that were were great.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The groups were spaced out nicely. You only ran into one or two other groups inside the maze.

Appropriate Ages: 12+

Props / Special FX: Special FX were good. The glow-in-the-dark paint and moving attractions were very creative. The props were also well put together, but some did go off at the wrong time.

Costumes / Make-up: I personally felt that the costumes and make-up were not as detailed as they were last year.

Summary: Overall I think this is a good haunted house for the area. I felt last year had a greater scare factor and even lasted longer. You can tell a lot of hard work went into the entire process and some parts are entertaining. However I was not as impressed this year compared to last year. The price increase this year may keep certain patrons from visiting.
